Between hiking, biking, driving, snowmobiling, kayaking, horseback riding, snow coach rides, guided tours and beyond, there are umpteen ways to get around in Yellowstone. Most people move through the park by car or tour bus since, after all, there are over 300 miles of roads to navigate.
When you experience Yellowstone on a tour, you can sit back and enjoy the views while your guide offers in-depth info on the passing scenery. Plus, each company’s certified guides are overflowing with specialized knowledge to keep you safe in the backcountry and to provide exciting, exclusive adventures.
